Mount Budludzha is situated within the Shipka Pass in central Bulgaria. The location has historical importance as it was here that Hadzhi Ditmar and his rebels died fighting the Turks in 1868. 23 years later the Buzludzha Congress was held in the same location which led to the formation of the Bulgarian Socialist Party.

A Museum was later constructed at the summit, (1441m/4727ft), to commemorate both events. The large “UFO” housed displays on several levels, a panoramic walkway giving views out across the mountains in all directions and the centrepiece main hall with its murals and large domed ceiling approximately 15m/50ft high. In addition to this there is a large tower with a Red Star emblem, rumoured to be made from rubies which adjoins the main structure.

The museum has been abandoned since 1989 and since then has slowly been stripped of metal and murals. Currently there are no plans to preserve what remains.
